In this two-hour introductory workshop with writing instructor Chelsey Everest, participants will learn the guiding principles of The Writing Sangha, a meditative writing workshop to address difficult experiences in a compassionate and creative space. Originally designed by the facilitator as a means to address issues of campus sexual assault, the framework for this practice is essential for anyone in need of a more mindful approach towards holistic wellness. Participants will learn the four basic pillars of the practice, be led through a guided meditation, and respond to several intentional prompts.
